/ bouldering in west midlands?
without having to travel all the way to wales! lol
The huntsham rocks near symonds yat in the wye valley, not been there myself, but apparently its awesome!
may have to do some research on it then!!
iv got a dislocated knee at the minute anyway so wont be for a good couple months until i can go. hopefully the weathers better by then! lol
this place looks amazing! how much of it is bouldering though? looks mostly rope climbing

With a pad, some brushes and some secateurs to clear the brambles back, I reckon local boulders could find some pretty sweet problems there.
definately worth checking out then! cheers dude
im in wolverhampton area mate. not much around here close by.
need to find some fun spots for the summer!
Better luck next time then. ;)
More seriously probably the Shropshire crags might be more accessible for you, but Southstone might be worth a visit one day. It's a very pretty area and lots of nice pubs for lunch etc.
i tried out the tomb crag there by the rock houses but it was so crumbly it was barely climbable. i think wrens nest is all blocked off now mate, lived there when i was a nipper.
Think you can still buy from High Sports, Shrewsbury. Shropshire is closest decent bouldering, followed by Churnet Valley, which is a bit further away but not as good as Shropshire imo.
